Kate's Affections

I dyed some yarn for my friend Kate a while back for a Color Affection. She talked about some summer Caribbean-ish colors and I came up with these:

Cool Blue

She chose a yellow-gold to go with, and voila!

Of course, she had some unused yarn and thought it would be fun to make a coordinating CA for her daughter, so she chose some other colors and knit up a second version:

And, you know, because this is potentially one of those stories that never ends...

These were all knit using the hand-dyed sock/fingering yarn base that I call "BE." It's a soft yet durable 75% superwash merino/25% nylon blend.

I was the lucky recipient of a little leftover ball of the brown... enough to make a hexipuff (minus the puff)! I love those kind.

Have you made your guess as to how many hexis I've made? There are only a few more hours...

You both do exquisite work! Enjoy your weekend, Vicki!!

I keep trying to talk myself out of knitting that shawl. So tempting. Yours are beautiful!

whoa, your colors are like a dream!

Color Affections all look so different dont they. I love the third one best as it reminds me of autumn.

Love! They are all so beautiful. The yarn, the color combination and the knitting are all superb.

I am glad to see I am not the only one who was afflicted by the vicious CA bug! :)

So beautiful. . . I have bought the pattern for Color Affection, but when I go to the yarn store, I can't seem to find three colors that want to play nicely together. Your combinations are truly gorgeous.

Those are all perfectly lovely!

You achieved beautiful caribbean blues, I could hear the waves hitting the beach.

Surely, you and I need to do a little swap. Football related? My patriots for your Packers? :)

What a nice little duo and perfect for redheads!

Lovely!

Great color combinations! I especially like the first one.
